Can’t Paint Your Pad? Decorating Your Apartment with Removable Décor

July 14, 2011 | Apartment Décor, DIY Home Improvement

Can’t paint the walls of your apartment? Many buildings and landlords don’t want to go through the hustle and bustle of putting on a new coat of paint after tenants leave—but no worries! There are other fun and affordable ways to decorate your apartment!

Decorating Your Apartment with Removable Décor: 

  • Easy Change Wallpaper by Sherwin Williams: This non-woven wallpaper will completely change the way you think about decorating your walls. Available in many colors and styles, it is any renter’s dream come true. Sherwin Williams guarantees that the product is environmentally friendly, dimensionally stable (won’t expand, contract or separate), breathable (prevents moisture from being trapped), and fully washable. And most important for renters, the wallpaper is easily installed and removed!

  • Wall Decals: Decals are a fun and inexpensive way to transform any room into your own space. The removable stickers can range from intricate designs to simple quotes, have simple installations, and can come down just as easily as they were put up. For renters, Dali Decals suggests ordering a matte finish for your decal since it is the easiest to remove from walls.

  • Curtains: While most people think of curtains as being only window treatments, they can also be used as an affordable way to spice up a room! Simply by installing a beautiful curtain across an old, empty wall, you’ve just saved yourself a lot of time and energy that might have otherwise been spent painting. It’s a whole lot cheaper too! IKEA has a great selection of curtains and curtain rods to turn this idea into a reality.

  • Picture Frames: There’s no better way to make your apartment look great and feel like a home than adding picture frames to your walls. You can find affordable frames at many home goods stores including Bed Bath & Beyond and Target. One creative idea is to create a picture frame collage, made up of all different sizes and colors of frames. The collage can be as large or as small as you’d like, and personalized for any space.
